Cutting Agate with a Chicago Electric Tile Saw?

I have been given a tile saw with 2 1/2 hp motor, 10" blade, 3550 rpm useing water for coolant. Seems to cut up to hardness 6-6.5 ok but agate makes things a tough go. 1. would a addative to coolant (water) help? 2. recomendation on blade thickness or more suitable blade? 3. continuous rim vs notched blade?
